    We had it all

    We thought we had it all-a beautiful house, three healthy children and one more on the way, two cars—and we loved it. We spent money like it was going out of style. Then the market turned and my husband’s job as a bigwig(大人物)at a construction company was gong. The company was closing down for ever.    

    We both started looking for jobs right away, but there weren’t any to be found. With each passing day 

    our panic increased and we continued to work together in order to pull our family through. The more we pulled together, the closer we got. I felt feelings of great love for my husband that I hadn’t felt in years. 

     That’s why it was so hard for me to watch him blame himself for our present situation. I knew that he had no control over the economy, however, he constantly degraded(降低身份)himself and his spirit sunk lower with each unkind comment. I continually asked him to stop, but he seemed to want to punish himself for not having a job. 

      Finally, one afternoon I pulled him aside and said, “We have four healthy children. That’s what’s important. That makes you a rich man.”

    “But what if we lose the house? They’ll hate me-you’ll hate me,” he replied.

     I smiled at him and put my hands on both sides of his face to make him look me in the eye.

     “If we live in a cardboard box on the empty place across the street I will be happy-as long as I have you.” I smiled again as I realized that I wasn’t saying it. Somehow, in all the struggling together I had found that deep love for him that I had on the day we said “I do”. 

     I could see relief wash through him as his shoulders and neck relaxed and the tension left his body. He held me close and we were able to talk and plan and dream together in a way that we hadn’t in quite some time.

     We are still struggling financially, but I consider us well-off because we have something that money can’t buy and no one can take away from us.

    29. In the wife’s opinion, what is important in her family?

       A. A beautiful house     B. Healthy children      C. Expensive cars     D. Desirable jobs

    30. Which of the following agrees with the passage?

       A. The husband has found his jobs            B. The family has lost their house

       C. The family has four children              D. They live in a cardboard box.

    31. Which is NOT the effect of the financial crisis towards the family?

       A. They spent money like it was going out of style.

       B. The husband wasn’t a bigwig in the company any more

       C. The wife felt feeling of love for her husband.

       D. They realized there is something that money can’t buy between them.

    32. Where can we put the missing sentence “It was a turning point for us as a couple and a family.”?

       A. ①   B. ②   C. ③   D. ④

    Maybe ten-­year­-old Elizabeth put it best when she said to her father, “But, Dad, you can’t be healthy if you’re dead.”

    Dad, in a hurry to get home before dark so he could go for a run, had forgotten to wear his safety belt—a mistake 75% of the US population makes every day. The big question is why.

    There have been many myths about safety belts ever since their first appearance in cars some forty years ago. The following are three of the most common.

    Myth Number OneIt’s best to be “thrown clear” of a serious accident.

    Truth: Sorry, but any accident serious enough to “throw you clear” is also going to be serious enough to give you a very bad landing. And chances are you’ll have traveled through a windshield(挡风玻璃) or door to do it. Studies show that chances of dying after a car accident are twenty ­five times greater in cases where people are “thrown clear”.

    Myth Number Two: Safety belts “trap” people in cars that are burning or sinking in water.

    Truth: Sorry again, but studies show that people knocked unconscious due to not wearing safety belts have a greater chance of dying in these accidents. People wearing safety belts are usually protected to the point of having a clear head to free themselves from such dangerous situationnot to be trapped in them.

    Myth Number Three: Safety belts aren’t needed at speeds of less than 30 miles per hour(mph).

    Truth: When two cars traveling at 30 mph hit each other, an unbelted driver would meet the windshield with a force equal to diving head first into the ground from a height of 10 meters.

    25. Why did Elizabeth say to her father, “But, Dad, you can’t be healthy if you’re dead.”?

    A. He was driving at great speed.        B. He was running across the street.

    C. He didn’t have his safety belt on.    D. He didn’t take his medicine on time.

    26. According to the textto be “thrown clear” of a serious accident is very dangerous because you ______.

    A. may be knocked down by other cars

    B. may get seriously hurt being thrown out of the car

    C. may find it impossible to get away from the seat

    D. may get caught in the car door

    27. Some people prefer to drive without wearing a safety belt because they believe ________.

    A. the belt prevents them from escaping in an accident

    B. they will be unable to think clearly in an accident

    C. they will be caught when help comes

    D. cars catch fire easily.

    A new method of delivering data, which uses the visible spectrum (光谱) rather than radio waves, has been tested in a working office.

    Li-fi can deliver internet access 100 times faster than traditional wi-fi, offering speeds of up to 1Gbps (gigabit per second). It requires a light source, such as a standard LED bulb, an internet connection and a photo detector.

    It was tested this week using a li-fi-enabled light bulb to transmit data at speeds of 1Gbps. Laboratory testes have shown theoretical speeds of up to 224Gpbs. When tested in an office, it allowed workers to access the internet and in an industrial space, where it provided a smart lighting solution. Chief executive Deepak Solanki said that the technology could reach consumers “within three or four years”.

    The term li-fi was first coined by Prof Haas, who demonstrated the technology at a Ted conference in 2011. His talk, which has now been watched nearly two million times, showed an LED lamp streaming video. Prof Haas described a future when billions of light bulbs could become wireless hotspots.

    One of the big advantages of li-fi is the fact that, unlike wi-fi, it does not interfere with other radio signals, so could be used on aircraft and in other places where interference is an issue.

    However, the technology also has its drawbacksmost notably the fact that it cannot be used outdoors in direct sunlight, because that would interfere with its signal. Neither can the technology travel through walls so initial use is likely to be limited to some places.

    29. Which of the following will be the best title of this passage?

       A. The drawbacks of traditional Wi-fi            B. The advantages of Li-fi

       C. Li-fi 100 times faster than Wi-fi                D. Li-fi and Wi-fi

    30. Which of the following statements is TRUE?

       A. Traditional wi-fi can reach speeds of up to 1Gbps.

       B. The new technology has been put into use by consumers.

       C. Deepak Solanki showed the new technology at a conference in 2011.

       D. Li-fi can’t be used without a light source, an internet connection or a photo detector.

    31. This passage may be ____________.

       A. a piece of news                     B. a science fiction

       C. a fashion magazine              D. a product brochure

            One hundred and thirteen million Americans have at least one bank-issued credit card. They give their owners automatic credit in stores, restaurants, and hotels, at home, across the country, and they make many banking services available as well. More and more of these credit cards can be read automatically, making it possible to withdraw or deposit money in scattered locations, whether or not the local branch bank is open. For many of us the cashless society is not on the horizon---its already here.

    While computer offer these conveniences to consumers, they have many advantages for sellers too. Electronic cash registers can do much more than simply ring up sales. They can keep a wide range of records, including who sold what, when and to whom. This information allows businessmen to keep track of their list of goods by showing which items are being sold and how far they are moving. Decisions to reorder or return goods to suppliers can then be made. At the same time these computers record which hours are busiest and which employees are the most efficient, allowing personnel and staffing assignments to be made accordingly. And they also identify preferred customer for promotional campaigns. Computers are relied on by manufacturers for similar reasons. Computer analyzed marketing reports can help to decide which products to emphasize now, which to develop for the future and which to drop. Computers keep track of goods in stock, of raw materials on hand, and even of the production process itself.

    Numerous other commercial enterprises, from theaters to magazine publishers, from gas and electric utilities to milk processors, bring better and more efficient services to consumers through the use of computers.

    23From the last sentence of the first paragraph we learn that __________ .

    A. in the future all the Americans will use credit cads

    B. credit cards are mainly used in the United States today

    C. nowadays many Americans do not pay in cash

    D. it is now more convenient to use credit cards than before

    24If computers record which hours are busiest and which employees are the most efficient, what will businessmen do?

    A. They will fire some employees and raise the work efficiency.

    B. They will arrange for different employees to do different jobs according to their abilities and performance.

    C. They will assign more work for the employees to do.

    D. They will allow the personnel to do whatever work they want to do.

    25What does the underlined phrase ring up sales in paragraph two mean?

    A. make an order of goods.

    B. record sales on a cash register.

    C. call the sales manager.

    D. keep track of the goods in stock.

    26What does the passage mainly discuss?

    A. Approaches to the commercial use of computers.

    B. Advantages of credit cards in business.

    C. Significance of automation in commercial enterprises.

    D. Conveniences brought about by computers in business.

            I know what youre thinking: pizzaFor breakfast? But the truth is that you can have last nights leftovers in the a.m. if you want to. 

     I know lots of women who skip breakfast (不吃早饭), and they have a ton of different excuses for doing it. Some say they dont have time, others think theyre saying calories still others just dont like breakfast food .

Researchers at the University of Southern California found that breakfast skippers have a bigger chance of gaining weight than those who regularly have a morning meal.  

    So eat something in the morning, anything. I know plenty of friends who end up having no breakfast altogether, and have just coffee or orange juice. I say, try heating up last nights leftovers it may sound crazy, but if it works for you, do it! I find if I tell myself, You can always eat it tomorrow. I put away the leftovers instead of eating more that night. Try it you may save yourself some pre-bedtime calories. And watch your body gain the fat-burning effects.

            More than 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed across the globe each day, and its likely that many taste bitter.

    Now, a new study suggests that coffee fans can make their drink taste sweeter by simply changing the colour of their cups.

    Scientists claim that blue and glass mugs, which are popular in some coffee shops, can reduce coffees bitterness, without any need for sugar, and that coffee drunk from white cups tastes the bitterest.

    To prove their claims, the researchers invited 36 volunteers and used three different colored cups -- blue, white and transparent glass -- to do an experiment.

    In the experiment, coffee consumed from the white cup was found to taste less sweet when compared to the other two colored cups, while the blue cup made the coffee taste the sweetest.

    The scientists believe that the colour brown may be associated with coffees bitterness because coffee in a white cup appears the brownest and tastes the bitterest.

    Our study clearly shows that the colour of a coffee cup does influence the perceived (感受到的) taste and flavor of coffee, said Dr George Doorn of Federation University Australia, but the potential effects may be different between a one-time purchase and a return customer.

    Anyhow, the effect of the colour of the cup on the flavor of the coffee suggests that café owners, baristas (服务员), as well as coffee cup manufacturers should carefully consider the colour of their cups, he added.

    However, the idea that colour can alter the taste of food and drink is not new.

    A study published last year revealed that red, strawberry-flavored mousse (慕斯蛋糕) served on a white plate was rated as 10 percent sweeter and 15 percent more flavorous than the same food presented on a black plate.

    15What color of the cup can best reduce coffees bitterness without adding sugar?

    A. Blue.          B. Brown.       C. White.        D. Transparent.

    16The scientists used ________ to do the experiment to prove their claims.

    different brands of coffee

    different colored coffee cups

    several volunteers

    several manufactures

    A. ① ②           B. ② ③         C. ② ④       D. ③ ④

    17Why does coffee in white cups taste the least sweet?

    A. Because white cups are not as beautiful as other cups.

    B. Because white cups make coffee appear the brownest.

    C. Because white cups reduce the sugar in them.

    D. Because white cups are better used to serve cakes.

    18According to the article, which of the following statements is TRUE?

    A. Black plates increase the sweetness of food and drink.

    B. Strawberry-flavored mousse is 10 percent sweeter than coffee.

    C. People consume more than 2.5 billion cups of coffee across the globe every year.

    D. People can make coffee taste sweeter by changing the color of their coffee cups.

    Attitude is an internal(内在的) state that influences the choices of personal action made by the individual. Some researchers consider that attitudes come from differences between beliefs and ideas; others believe that attitudes come from emotional states. Here, we focus on the effects of attitudes upon behavior, that is, upon the choices of action made by the individual.

    The kinds of actions taken by human beings are obviously influenced greatly by attitudes. Whether one listens to classical music or rock, whether one obeys the speed limit while driving, whether one encourages one’s husband or wife to express his or her own ideas—all are influenced by attitudes. These internal states are acquired throughout life from situations one is faced with in the home, in the streets, and in the school.

    Of course, the course of action chosen by an individual in any situation will be largely determined by the particulars of that situation. An individual who has a strong attitude of obeying laws may drive too fast when he is in a hurry and no police cars in sight. A child who has a strong attitude of honesty may steal a penny when she thinks no one will notice. But the internal state which remains unchanged over a period of time, and which makes the individual behave regularly in a variety of situations, is what is meant by an attitude.

    Attitudes are learned in a variety of ways. They can result from single incidents, as when an attitude toward snakes is acquired by an experience in childhood at the sudden movement of a snake. They can result from the individual’s experiences of success and pleasure, as when someone acquires a positive attitude toward doing crossword puzzles by being able to complete some of them. And frequently, they are learned by copying other people’s behavior, as when a child learns how to behave toward foreigners by observing the actions of his parents. Regardless of these differences, there is something in common in the learning and modification(修正) of attitudes.

    15According to the passage, we know attitudes _________.

    A. are largely affected by one’s behavior

    B. come from different situations in one’s life

    C. remain unchanged in one’s daily life

    D. could be chosen according to one’s will

    16Which of the following is TRUE about the learning of attitudes?

    A. Attitudes are only learned through one’s success.

    B. Copying others’ behavior is not a good idea.

    C. Attitudes can be learned from one’s parents.

    D. Attitudes learned in danger will last longer.

    17The author uses the examples in Paragraph 3 to show ________.

    A. particulars of a situation may influence an individual’s action

    B. people with good attitudes may sometimes do bad deeds

    C. an individual may change his or her attitude fairly easily

    D. people often make mistakes when they are not noticed

    18Which of the following can be learned from the passage?

    A. Researchers believe that attitudes only come from emotional states.

    B. Attitudes have a bad influence on actions.

    C. An honest child won’t steal a penny.

    D. Attitudes can be learned either by one’s experience or by observing the actions of others.

    You hear the same complaint all the time: “My memory is terrible” Is it all in the mind, or do real changes take place in the brain with the passing of time? The answer is that the brain’s cells, the neurons, decline and die with age. However, according to Professor Arthur Shimamura of the University of California, people vary greatly in how they change mentally with age, as well as how much their mental ability declines

    There are three main ways in which mental function changesThe first concerns speed, such as how quickly you can react to fast-moving incidents on the road. Drivers in their late teen react quickly but often drive too fast, while the over-60’s are more careful but react more slowlyThis type of mental slowing results from a reduction in the efficiency with which the brain’s neurons work

    The fact that adults find it harder to learn musical instrument than children points to a second type of mental decline, the loss of learning ability with ageThe part of the brain which is known to control new learning is particularly sensitive to the effects of agingThe means we have to depend more on diaries and other mental aids as we get older, take longer to learn a new language and are slower to master new things at work

    “Working memory” is the third brain function that is sensitive to the effects of aging. Absent-mindedness occurs at all ages because of imperfections in the working memory systemFor example, you may continually lose your glasses, or find yourself walking into a room of your house only to find that you cannot remember what you came forSuch absent-mindedness also occurs more often as we get older

    However, evidence also shows that the principle “use it or lose it” applies to the aging brainProfessor Shimamura studied a group of university professors who were still mentally active, and compared their performance on neuropsychological tests with that of others of their age group, as well as with younger people. He found that on several tests of memory, the mentally active professors in their 60’s and early 70’s performed better than those of the same age, and as well as the younger group

    28Memory gets worse as people grow older because _________

    A. the brain starts to produce too many neurons      B. cells in the brain stop the neurons from working

    C. when people get old, they complain too much     D. the brain’s neurons don’t work as well as before

    29Which of the following well-known sayings best expresses the idea of the third paragraph?

    A. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks

    B. Where there’s a will, there’s a way

    C. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

    D. It’s never too old to learn

    30We can conclude from Shimamura’s test on the professors that _________

    A. the principle “use it or lose it” is obviously wrong    B. active minds might keep their memory better

    C. memory can improve with the time passing on       D. all of the old people will suffer memory loss

    31This passage is mainly about _________

    A. aging and mental ability

    B. problems of getting old

    C. secrets of a good memory

    D. youth and aging

    It may help you to know that there is no such thing as a perfect speech. At some point in every speech, every speaker says something that is not understood exactly as he has planned. Fortunately, such moments are usually not obvious to the listeners. Why? Because the listeners do not know what the speaker plans to say. They hear only what the speaker does say. If you lose your place for a moment, wrongly change the order of a couple of sentences, or forget to pause at a certain point, no one will be any the wiser. When such moments occur, don’t worry about them. Just continue as if nothing happened. 

      Even if you do make an obvious mistake during a speech, that doesn’t really matter. If you have ever listened to Martin Luther King’s famous speech—"I Have a Dream", you may notice that he stumbles (结巴)over his words twice during the speech. Most likely, however, you don’t remember. Why? Because you were fixing your attention on his message rather than on his way of speech-making.

      People care a lot about making a mistake in a speech because they regard speech-making as a kind of performance rather than as an act of communication. They feel the listeners are like judges in an ice-skating competition. But, in fact, the listeners are not looking for a perfect performance. They are looking for a well-thought-out speech that expresses the speaker’s ideas clearly and directly. Sometimes a mistake or two can actually increase a speaker’s attractiveness by making him more human.

      As you work on your speech, don’t worry about being perfect. Once you free your mind of this, you will find it much easier to give your speech freely.

    24The underlined part in the first paragraph means that no one will     

    A. be smarter than you

    B. know what you are talking about

    C. do better than you

    D. notice your mistakes

    25You don’t remember obvious mistakes in a speech because     

    A. you find the way of speech-making more important

    B. you don’t fully understand the speech

    C. you don’t know what the speaker plans to say

    D. your attention is on the content

    26From the last two paragraphs, the author means that     

    A. giving a speech is like giving a performance

    B. the listeners should pay more attention to how a speech is made

    C. one or two mistakes in a speech may not be bad

    D. the more mistakes a speaker makes, the more attractive he will be

    27What would be the best title for the passage?

    A. How to Be a Perfect Speaker

    B. Don’t Expect a Perfect Speech

    C. Don’t Expect Mistakes in a Speech

    D. How to Make a Perfect Speech

    One of my neighbors used to have a beautiful tree in her front yard. Her dad had planted it for her when it was nothing more than a twig(树枝) and several years later it started to shoot towards the sky with amazing speed. Soon it blessed her with cooling shade in the summer and glorious, golden leaves in the fall.

    When the two-day snowstorm struck our town, heavy snow fell on the tree’s branches that were still full of leaves. The weight split that lovely tree down the middle. It was so sad seeing half of it laying on the ground after the storm. When I talked to my neighbor later, she said that the damage had been too much and that the entire tree would have to be cut down. Thankfully she had saved a few saplings(树苗) from it that she hoped to replant in the future.

    Still, it was a shock to drive by her house the other day and see nothing but a stump in her front yard. I missed that tree. I missed its beauty, its leaves shinning in the afternoon sun. I missed seeing its limbs reach towards the heavens. I thought that the stump would be a sad reminder of its loss for a long time to come. My wonderful neighbor, though, had another plan. When I drove by her home today I saw a tiny bird feeder sitting on that stump and a colorful songbird having its dinner. It was such an affirmation of life. It was such a joy to see. I could feel my heart smile.

    Life by its very nature is a mixed bag. It hands us beauty and tragedy, love and loss, pleasure and pain. What we do with it, however, is up to us. We can let it split us in two, or we can use even its hardest times to make our souls stronger and our hearts more loving. We can spend it complaining or we can use it to help others.

    21We know from the first paragraph that _____

    A. the tree grew very slowly.               B. the tree was so strong that it could bear any weight.

    C. the tree showed its beauty and benefits.    D. the author’s neighbor was good at planting trees.

    22The author’s neighbor left a stump in her front yard to use it as_____.

    A. a good reminder.

    B. a place to feed birds.

    C. a seat after dinner.

    D. a beautiful sculpture.

    23What does the author mainly want to show in the passage?

    A. Life is determined by our attitude towards it.     B. Life consists of pain and suffering.

    C. Life has beauty and tragedy.                  D. Life should be pleasant rather than painful.

    For most of the history, interpretation was mainly done consecutively, with speakers and interpreters making pauses to allow each other to speak. But after the appearance of radio technology, a new simultaneous(同时的) interpretation system was developed.

    In the simultaneous mode, interpreters translate a speaker’s words while he speaks without pauses. On the surface, it all looks effortless, but behind the scenes, human interpreters work continuously to ensure every idea gets across as intended, and that is no easy task.

    It takes about two years of training for already fluent bilingual professionals to expend their vocabulary and master the skills necessary to become conference interpreters. To get used to the unnatural task of speaking while they listen, students shadow the speakers and repeat their every word exactly as heard in the same language. In time, they begin to paraphrase what is said, making necessary adjustments as they go.Practicing in this way creates new neural pathways in the interpreters’ brain, and the constant effort of reformulation gradually becomes second nature. Interpreters are also skilled at keeping calm in the fact of chaos. Remember, they have no control over who is going to say what, of how expressive the speaker will sound. A curveball can be thrown at any time. Also, they often perform in front of thousands of people and in very thrilling settings. To conduct a task well, they carefully prepare for an assignment, building glossaries in advance, reading eagerly about the subject matter, and reviewing previous talks on the topic. Finally, interpreters work in pairs. While one colleague is busy translating incoming speeches in real time, the other gives by locating documents, looking up words, and tracking down related information. Because simultaneous interpretation requires intense concentration, every 30 minutes, the pair switches roles. Success is heavily dependent on skillful collaboration.

    Language is complex, and when abstract concepts get lost in translation, the consequences may be deadly. As Margaret Atwood famously noted, “War is what happens when language fails.” International conference interpreters of all people are aware of that and work diligently behind the scenes to make it never does.

    29. What might be the best title of this passage?

    A. How to Be an Effortless Speaker

    B. How Interpreters Manage Two Languages

    C. How to Avoid War with Successful Translation

    D. How Interpreters Enlarge Their Vocabulary

    30. To become a skilled simultaneous interpreter, a student has to practice            .

    A. looking effortless behind the scene

    B. following and copying what the speaker says

    C. changing the speaker’s words into other meanings

    D. creating new neural pathways to keep calm

    31. What does the underlined sentence mean?

    A. No one knows when a ball will be thrown out.

    B. Unexpected events may happen at any moment.

    C. Interpreting is like throwing a ball.

    D. The speaker sometimes cannot control the interpreter.

    32. Why do simultaneous interpreters work in pairs?

    A. Because they have to build vocabulary before their task.

    B. Because each of them works 30 minutes and then takes a break.

    C. Because they have to change roles to support each other.

    D. Because their success depends on looking for information.

    Figuring out ways to help

    As a 16-year-old American student at Colorado Springs School, Michael Gohde, sees the world this wayas writing a computer program, the most complex outcome is really only a collection of simple elementssimple ideas, simple actsthat build on one another.

    When he was 7, he was confused about why there were homeless people sleeping on the streets. He asked his mother why. “They need our help,” said Betsy deVries-Gohde, doing her best to explain their situation to her son. After that, 

    Michael saved enough money to buy bottled water and sandwiches to distribute to the needy.      

    When a family friend was diagnosed with cancer last summer, Michael and his parents purchased a pre-made care 

    package  a collection of products and comfort items especially tailored for patients going through cancer treatment. After his grandmother went through chemotherapy (化疗) for lymphoma (淋巴瘤), Michael asked his mom what things would make his grandma feel better. She suggested a care package.

    On Dec 18, after Michael finished his last exam, he headed home to finish packing about 30 gift bags. The next day, he and his mom visited a nearby cancer center to hand out the care packages.      

    “I had a job and extra money, so I figured, let’s do this,” Michael said. The teenager has a part-time job working 

    20 hours a week, helping to write Android mobile applications.      

    At Rocky Mountain Cancer Center, Mary Matykiewicz held her new socks and thanked “the very nice young man” 

    who’d given them to her. “You wouldn’t think kids would recognize the need, but they tend to surprise you,” said 

    Jayme Stangier, a patient at the center. Betsy deVries-Gohde, whose mother died of pancreatic cancer in 1999, was 

    moved by her son’s compassion. “These people are so tender now with what they’re going through. It feels so good to me to know that he cares,” she said. “Teenagers have their ups and downs, but Michael, he’s pretty steady.”  

    21. The underlined word “distribute”  probably means ______. 

    A. brought    B. adopted     C. adapted     D. gathered

    22.What did Michael Gohde do to help cancer patients?  

    A. He volunteered to take care of them at the Cancer Center.

    B. He gifted them care packages, bought with his own money.

    C. He wrote mobile apps to find the treatments for them.

    D. He brought them gifts to surprise them.

    23. What can we infer from the article?

    A. Michael’s way of viewing the world was partly related to his part-time job.

    B. Michael’s mother took pride in her son’s willingness to help those in need.

    C. Michael often went to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center to help look after cancer patients.

    D. It was his grandmother’s suffering from cancer that led Michael to care a lot about cancer patients. 

    4. Which of the following best describes Michael Gohde?    

    A. Well-educated.    B. Dutiful.   C. Warm-hearted.   D. Generous.

    One morning, I stepped out of bed and put my feet on the floor. Suddenly, a mean little man jumped out from under the bed and stabbed (刺,扎) an ice pick (碎冰锥) through my left foot.
    Figuratively (
    比喻地) speaking, yes.
    I took another step and he stabbed it again. This went on all day. Step, stab, scream. Over the next few days, I started limping (
    跛行). My whole body hurt. Even my hair. I kept thinking that the little man would get tired of stabbing me and go pick on somebody else. We often take things for granted until we lose them or they start to hurt.
    My brother deals with pain every day. He’s also blind and suffers from cerebral palsy (
    脑瘫), needs a walker to walk, doesn’t take much for granted. I had to wonder: What would he think about my foot?
    Finally, after a week of pain, I went to see a very nice foot doctor. The doctor studied my foot, took X-rays, shook his head, and said the little man’s name: Arthur Itis, or Arthritis (
    关节炎).
    I knew it well. I’d often heard it hissed angrily by my grandparents and parents, all attacked by Arthur’s ice pick when they got older.
    “Wait,” I said. “Doesn’t Arthur usually just pick on old people?”
    The doctor smiled, looking at my chart. “How old are you?”
    I gave him a look. “Never mind,” I said. “Can you fix it?”
    “Well,” he said, “we can try.”
    He listed several options and I chose the injection (
    打针). It didn’t hurt much. Not half as much as the ice pick.
    That was yesterday. This morning, I awoke, took a few careful steps and … hallelujah! It hurt just a bit, but no ice pick. I looked under the bed. No sign of Arthur. Maybe he was hiding in the closet, waiting for another day. But for now, he was gone, and I was grateful. My mind began to race with plans to do all the things I’d been putting off for days: unpack, clean the house, wash my hair …
    Then it hit me. Another stab. Not in my foot. In my heart. I remembered that I hadn’t called my brother in a long time.
    It’s easy to take some things for granted. But it should never be the people we love.
    28. Why didn’t the author go to see the doctor for the first week?
     A. Because she was afraid that her brother would laugh at her.
     B. Because she thought it was too cold to step out of her room.
     C. Because she expected that the pain would gradually disappear.
     D. Because she believed that she could endure the pain like her brother did.
    29.  Who had a disease that was different from the other people mentioned?
     A. The author. B. The author’s brother. C. The author’s parents. D. The author’s grandparents.
    30.  After having the injection, the author’s _______.
     A. felt regretful because it hurt so much
    B. was first satisfied with her recovery
    C. felt better but could still feel the “ice pick” pain
    D. was busy with housework that had been delayed for days
    31. From her experience of arthritis, the author learned that _______.
    A. a stabbing pain in the heart is as painful as one in the foot 
    B. people who help us relieve pain should be thanked properly
    C. we should always remember to show our love to those we love
    D. we should never take for granted the pain we experience in life

    For Chinese, it’s a time for dragon boat racing and Zongzi(粽子). But across the Yellow Sea, South Korea, wrestling(摔跤)and swing play are the highlights. However, both events go by the same name---the Dragon Boat Festival---which falls on May5 of the lunar calendar.
    One festival, two cultures: does one nation have the right to call its own? It has been reported that South Korea will apply
    (申请)to the United Nations Educational, Social and Cultural OrganizationUNESCO联合国教科文组织)to make the celebration its cultural heritage(文化遗产). If successful, people from other countries may see the Dragon Festival as a Korean creation.
    As the birthplace of the yearly event more than 2,000 years ago, China is not happy with the situation. “It would be a shame if another country successfully made a traditional Chinese festival part of its own cultural heritage ahead of China,” said Zhou Heping, deputy culture minister. The Ministry of Culture is even thinking of making its own application to UNESCO, covering all traditional Chinese festivals, including the Dragon Boat event.
    Over the years, the Dragon Boat Festival has spread throughout the world. In Japan and Viet Nam, as well as South Korea, the festival has mixed with and become part of local culture.
    With this in mind, some experts say that it is meaningless to argue about which country the festival belongs to. “No one can deny that it came from China,” said Long Haiqing, an expert from Hunan Province. “But if all the countries involved can protect culture heritage together, they will all benefit.”
    24. The underlined word “highlights” can be probably replaced by “      “.
      A. most exciting events   B. highest lights on the building
      C. brightest lights at night   D. most famous festivals
    25. It can be inferred that South Korea       .
      A. has proclaimed
    (宣布)the Dragon Boat Festival as a part of its cultural heritage
      B. has the exactly same Dragon Boat Festival as China
      C. has no idea that China has such a festival
      D. is paying more attention to its cultural heritage than China
    26. China is not happy with the situation because       .
      A. it created the festival
      B. it is also making an application
      C. South Korea has no right to call the festival its own
      D. UNESCO may approve
    (批准)South Korea’s application
    27. If South Korea’s application to UNESCO is successful,       .
      A. China will also make its own application to UNESCO
      B. it will be meaningless to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival
      C. people from other parts of the world will think South Korea created the festival
      D. the Dragon Boat Festival will become part of local culture

        The narrow-body plane is designed to seat 168 passengers, and has a standard flight range  of 2,532 miles (4, 075 kilometers) ,  which means the aircraft can fly non-stop from Shanghai to Kuala Lumpur or from New York City to Los Angeles.

        A grand ceremony (仪式)  was held in COMAC's brand new factory in Pudong,Shanghai, to celebrate what Chinese experts are calling “a great moment”.

        The Great Wall of China is by far mankind's largest building. In the 16th and 17th centuries, it snaked 6, 400 kilometers or 4, 000 miles across northern China.Below are the four most visited Great Wall locations. All are near and north of Beijing:

    Badaling:

        This is by far the most popular Great Wall of China site for travelers, mainly because it is close to Beijing and is much easier to climb than the other parts. The Badaling part was built around 500 years ago and was rebuilt by the Chinese government over the last few decades.

    Mutianyu

        It is an hour farther away from Beijing than Badaling.  This is a favor-the extra travel time means that fewer vacation tour groups will travel here.  This site is excellent.The wall is clearly steeper than Badaling's. However, like Badaling, Mutianyu has a cable car(缆车) for tourists who choose not to walk up the wall.

    Simatai

        You must travel yet another hour to reach the site from Beijing compared with Mutianyu  and, therefore, you will meet even fewer vacationers than at Mutianyu.  Some of the wall lies on high and narrow mountain ridges (). Because it is especially steep and there is no cable car, I don’t suggest the site to those not in good physical condition.

    Shixiaguan

        This is the closest part to Beijing. The Shixiaguan part is still being rebuilt is open to the public. You can view it as driving to the Badaling part. You can climb it but remember that the Shixiaguan wall sits on a long, very steep slope(斜坡).

    21.Badaling has most travelers mainly because          .

    A. it is the highest part

    B. it has the cable car service

    c. it is easy to climb

    D. it is the closest to Beijing

    22.What can we learn about Mutianyu?

    A. It is the most crowded part.

    B. It is not convenient for weak people.

    C. It takes an hour to reach it from Beijing.

    D. It is quite far from Beijing but worth seeing.

    23.Which is the farthest part from Beijing?

    A. Badaling.             B. Simatai.                C. Mutianyu.    D. Shixiaguan

    Debris(碎片,残骸) located early Tuesday in the Atlantic Ocean off the northeast coast of Brazil is wreckage from the Air France jet that disappeared Monday, Brazil’s Defense Minister Nelson Jobim said.

    No survivors have been found, he said. Jobim made the announcement after meeting with relatives and friends of Brazilians who were among the 228 people aboard Flight 447 from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, France.

    Two debris fields were found about 650km(400 miles) northeast of the Fermando de Noronha Islands, an archipelago 355 kilometers(220 miles) off the northeast coast of Brazil—or at latitude 2 north, longtitude 30 west, the Ministry of Defense said on its website.

    One of the fields was 5km(3 miles) long and that both lie near the flight path between Rio de Jane iro and Paris.

    Among the wreckage was an air plane seat, metal debris, an orange float, a drum and an oil spill, the posting sail.

    Brazilian air force planes spotted the debris field Tuesday morning, but it was not until a French commercial vessel arrived on the scene that the debris’ origin was confirmed. The planes searched 10,000 square kilometers (3,861 square miles) of ocean throughout the day and would continue to search for more debris overnight, the Brazilian Air Force said.

    Two Netherlands-flagged vessels were expected to arrive in the area later in the day; a Brazilian navy ship was expected to arrive Wednesday, officials said. Brazilian air force jets were continuing to comb the area for other debris, and a US P-3 Orion maritime patrol aircraft was assisting as well.

    The searchers also want to find the cockpit voice and data recorders, which might shed slight on what caused the jet to disappear before any of the three pilots was able to issue a mayday(国际遇险无线电呼救信号).

    28. How far is the place where debris was found away from the northeast coast of Brazil?

    A. 295km.           B. 355km.           C. 650km.           D. 1,005km.

    29. How many countries are involved in helping the search?

    A. 2.                   B. 3.                   C. 4.                   D. 5.

    30. What can offer the materials to know the cause of the wreckage?

    A. The cockpit voice and data recorders.

    B. Any survivor from the 228 people aboard Flight 447.

    C. An air plane seat, metal debris and data recorders.

    D. Debris and the drum found on the site.

    31. What does the underlined word “comb” mean in the last but one paragraph?

    A. Arrange hair or fur.         B. Search the place thoroughly.

    C. Study something carefully.       D. Clean or arrange something.

    We’ve all done it at one time or another: took out our mobile phones to take a picture of a sunset that is too beautiful to forget, or photographed a particularly impressive dish at a restaurant.

    It’s obvious that we record our lives to keep our memories from fading, but with such widespread use of camera phones and new devices like the Narrative Clip that automatically takes a picture every 30 seconds-how much is too much? Are we taking too many pictures?

    If you look at recent research by Linda Henkel, a psychology professor at Fairfield University, you might think the answer is yes. Her research has suggested that taking photos can actually damage your ability to recall details of the event later. In her study from 2014, students were led on a museum tour and asked to take photos of certain works of art-and only observe others. When they were tested the next day, they were less able to remember details of objects that they had photographed. This is what Henkel calls a “photo-taking impairment effect”.

    “What I think is going on is that we treat the camera as a sort of external(外部的)memory device,” Henkel says. “We have this expectation that the camera is going to remember things for us, so we don’t have to continue processing that object and we don’t involve in the types of things that would help us remember it.”
